The acclaimed Vietnam Journal series from Don Lomax, nominated for a Harvey Award, is collected and presented as a series of graphic novels. Vietnam Journal is a look at the Vietnam War through the eyes of a war journalist, Scott 'Journal' Neithammer, as he chronicles the lives and events of soldiers on the front line during the Vietnam War. Collects issues 5-8. In BOOK TWO, ‘Journal’ must test his resolve in order to help others survive as he cannot sit ideally while events unfold around him. He finds himself in the infamous Iron Triangle with his troop company as they come across a village hamlet that was supposed to be evacuated but it wasn’t. ‘Journal’ and a fellow medical patient rush to save some kids in the village that is about to be overrun by Vietcong. What they hadn’t counted on was some G.I.s out for revenge against the Vietnamese...any Vietnamese. And having barely survived that encounter, an injured ‘Journal’ is sent back to the United States to recover and he discovers another type of war going on there as he sees firsthand the protests at home. Plus in a bonus short story, 'Journal' remembers his younger days covering the war in Korea a decade earlier. Picked by Entertainment Weekly as "a graphic novel you should own" and recommended by the Military History Book Club. "Even today, VIETNAM JOURNAL is one of the most gritty and brutally honest war stories ever published." - Brian Cronin, Comic Book Resources. "Vietnam Journal by Don Lomax is the best comic book portrayal of Vietnam I have ever read. Its probably one of the best works ever put down in any art form about the war." - Daniel Robert Epstein. "Vietnam Journal is a powerful work." - Marcia Allass, Sequential Tart. "A powerful collection of stories and history of the Vietnam War, created by a veteran of both the war and of war comics " - Douglas P. Dave, School Library Journal.
